Why aren’t there never any south Asian, middle Eastern, or Latino people in anime? 319 viewsSeptember 15, 2020 Question31.48K September 14, 2020 2 Answers Why foreign characters in anime are mostly limited to Americans? In: Other BelmontIncident commented September 14, 2020 Americans are the most prominent foreigners in Japan, although there actually is anime set elsewhere. Tezuka’s manga on the life of Buddha was adapted as anime in 2011 and all of the characters are necessarily south Asian. SmashingLobotomy commented September 14, 2020 There are some, though yes very limited. Like the older Western comics and unlike modern west comics, manga doesn’t really have a need to broaden their cast past Japan. And if they’re going to have a character who is partly defined as being foreign, why not pick the one the country knows the most about that is also, as far as basic stereotypes go, contrasting to the Japanese characters. 0 Answers ActiveVotedNewestOldest Register or Login Other Questions You Might Be Interested In: If our brains are constantly building adaptation to things, why do some things 'never get old'?Jacque Fresco's Venus Project?What Set the irregular Country borders and Why are they not straight lines/more uniform shapes?What is the tingling sensation you get in your throat when you catch a cold?How does playing an instrument or doing an musical/ artistic activity change the way your brain work...How does mysophobia work?
